    We had the best server and experience. She was knowledgeable and was readily available to give recommendations and personalized the experience making sure my husband was ok after mentioning he has a very mild seafood allergy. Highly recommend and we can’t wait to come back.

    Beautiful view and great service. However, we did not believe that those two things outweighed the meal cost and portion size. Large cost and small portions (even the main dish).

    Best meal we have ever had, celebrated our anniversary and the meal and service was top notch. Our table was atop a 3 tier platform in the middle so we did not get much of the views or ambiance. Next time would love it be seated on main floor with better views. 10 out of 10 would recommend for an amazing meal! We will be back

    We enjoyed our experience but were disappointed that we did not get a window seat. We had called, left a message that it was our 35th anniversary and could we have a window seat. I never heard back. I then put in a request through Open Table(where our reservation was made) stating we would greatly appreciate a window seat given it was our 35th. Our server was amazing so the score for service does not reflect her but the lack of response to our request. We had a wonderful time and the food was artistically arranged and tasty.

    My wife is a chef and gourmand. Her take is our dining experience last evening was the best overall she has had in 27 years of living in Michigan and maybe the best ever anywhere. Shirley was all pro; friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. In total we had six items from the menu and none were a weak link. Flavor and presentation - stupendous!

    Our server, who told us it was her first day alone was great. Excellent really. great smile and knew her stuff. We have been waiting quite a while to get to eat at the restaurant so maybe I expected more. Teh lap chops, salmon were very good. The jamon croquets were ok and the Spanish Omelet was really not very good. The Lemon dessert was exceptional. I guess the ambiance could have been better. Ong time customer of the hotel and all the restaurants and I guess I miss Cygnus. Probably will sit at the bar next time and have a drink and a few tapas

    Very friendly staff. Wonderful view and atmosphere. We were celebrating an anniversary and the staff wished us happy anniversary. My wife had scallops (excellent)an I had trout (also excellent, but could have been served with a little more starch). The olives for a start were great, but again, a little bread with them would have been better.
